3.83/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz can poured into a flute

A- A hazy golden straw color with a three finger white head.

S- Tart, lacto, some wheat, bready malts, underwhelming.

T- Much better than the nose, tart lemon, some wheat and pale malts, touch of funk, some lacto in the finish.

M- Pretty smooth, crisp, light body.

O- Not the best Berliner I have tried, but I am very happy that I was able to pick this up. Nose is fairly weak, but the taste is not.

Scouring the landscape in search for brewery downtime to fit in a brew session for themselves, the name is fitting for these wandering brewers. But finding favor with the northern German style seems right up their alley!

Nomader Weisse treats these Evil Twin brewers well as the lemony-stained body meets the tart lemon and lime character that carries its nose. Nearly mouthwatering to the scent, faint whiffs of grain and sugar give rise to the citrus fruit but doing so with a slight musty and sea-like earthiness.

Once the ale hit the tongue a quick procession goes from playful tartness and subtle bread sweetness to full-on acute sourness midway thorough the taste. Sour grapes, lemon peels, lime zest, crabapples and under-ripened berry all frame the sour palate while those earthen wafts keep on coming- salty brine, musty citrus and clean acidity provokes an effortless finish.

Its palate-stripping sourness refreshes the palate with ease and provides a light body and crisp texture. With a quick echo of wheat bread, the beer dissolves from the mouth with utter ease. It's a masterful taste with powerful sourness that never lingers or fatigues the palate. Perfect for hot summer days. I wish this was one of those.

12oz can with a June 2014 date stamp.
Pours hazy copper-amber with a sizable bubbly head.

Mild aroma even after the head dies down.

Strong tart flavor with a fruitiness dominated by lemon. Bready and yeasty aspects too.

Juicy body. Fine lively carbonation.

O: a bold and very flavorful 4% ABV beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A careful pour allows a 1/2 finger white head with decent retention and lacing. Head sits atop a lemon yellow brew, hazy but not thick.

Really interesting aroma, with a hint of citrus and lemon, some yeast - both musty and sweet - and a strange, almost egg-like quality. Very little malt body in the aroma, just a sense of wheat grains or hay.

Very tart and light brew, with a milkiness to it. Lemon, citric acid up front and very noticeable, with a grass milk-like malt body.

Very thin body, but the tartness does slow you a bit.

Enjoyed this straight, and as such, it's an OK beer. I look forward to trying it with some syrup.

12oz can into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with poor retention. Beer is a clear goldenrod with thin legs and spotty lace with little cling. Average.

Nose is tart and yeasty with a light sprinkle of lemon rind and wheat. Very mellow.

Opens lemon, yeast and wheat. Tart lemon rind with notes of hay in the middle. Yeasty, clean, tart finish and aftertaste. Again, really mellow. Doesn't really taste like much.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly in the mouth and goes down watery with a clean finish and the same aftertaste. Decent.

Very middle-of-the-road. This berliner really doesn't taste like much of anything. Maybe it'd be a good candidate for imparting some fruit?

12 oz. can poured into a Flying Dog goblet (5/30/14, bough from Max's VSB event for $5)

A: Hazy blonde straw with no head or lacing whatsoever. Only the slightest head on a pour.

S: Sour/lacto-smell for the most part. Not too much on the nose here.

T: Starts out tart, but runs into this rubbery taste that takes over and then dominates the aftertaste. Overall it was quite bland and a let down.

M: Slight carbonation with a tart roughness.

O: Different styles, but Mikkeller won this round of first can releases (whoops, I forgot about Hipster, but I haven't had that, so they are at least the first cans for me from the respective brewers). A let down and I was excited to be having another berliner weisse. The label art is pretty bland and boring as well.

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of lemons, grains. Taste is tart lemons, grains, a bit funky, finishes dry. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique and enjoyable beer.
